the next few quarters, driving profitability as well. number three, the environment as a whole, it seems that investors continue to discount the upside and are very cautious. we will not see returns like 2013, but we are still bullish as a whole. >> in the last conference call we kept hearing about companies guiding downwards. so much m&a. how do you account for that? >> that is a concern, not everything is rosy and perfect, but there are concerns out there and you have seen an environment over the last few years where every quarter they learn a is part of thech regulatory environment that we are in. they overpromise and underdeliver and could potentially be on the hook for money. it down. which is not to say that you should ignore these things. you want to look at it. but you need to do your homework and look at what is happening in terms of corporate earnings. generally speaking, and our view, if the company continues to take market share away from competitors in in industry that continues to grow, they must reflect in the numbers at some point. maybe not this quarter or the next quart
you indicate that the unemployment rate, in his current environment, with 6.7% -- with longer unemployment, is not like 6.6% unemployment in normal times? >> but mike, how do you communicate that? >> it will be difficult to do that and you will have speeches you make to give people guidance on what is going forward. i want to ask about the statement of inflation not being a problem. betting that inflation will rise over the coming months and the question is, how much is slack is there. on bloomberg surveillance tomorrow -- they argued it -- he will argue, this is much more dangerous than people think. saywill see chairman yellen that they will follow strict policy that will look at the labor market for reasons that we mentioned but this is not the only thing they will look at. they will go day to day to make sure they are not too soft. >> what kind of market can ben bernanke handoff to janet yellen? >> i would much rather be in her spot than his spot in 2008. i think that ben bernanke did a wonderful job of communicating that we are moving to tapering, and handing chairperson
environment is nothing to complain about. >> and what about the personal and commercial banking business, one of the biggest segments of what you guys do. what kind of demand trends are you seeing? >> well, again, there's clearly a slow down on the consumer side, but we're coming off, you know, double digit growth rates, and we're now moving into midsingle digit growth rates. part half is intended. our government has taken an approach to try to slow down consumer debt levels and it's having an impact which i say is a good thing. when you look at loan demand on the commercial side, it remains very strong. as i say, investment demand, deposit demand has been very good. so when you look at the overall platform, it grew at 7% this year -- or this past quarter over quarter, and so it's a slightly slower environment, but as i say not all that bad. >> i mean, we talk about the good quarter you just completed, but you've had a good year at rbc, but don't you feel like the easy money, to use that term, is done now? you guys are going to have to work a little harder to keep that growth rate going, don'

on top of it a light sensor, suddenly you are responding to the environment. what we do is make the kits and we see this consistently, people buy the kits and then come back and buy another kit, then they come back and buy individual bits. >> what's the repeat customer rating? >> right now between 15% and 20%. it's something that we continue to try to grow. obviously a lot of the first two years of the business have been about building the core customer base and the core product line. >> when i think of lego, one of the interesting things about it, they run their manufacturing operations and have amazing quality control. you can take them from this year and they still work with legos 50 years ago. do you worry about because you're open source someone else could take your designs and manufacture them more cheaply? >> we have a very balanced kind of approach to open source where we trademark our name and still hold patents for the connector and the system in general, so ultimately if you want to make something you want to call little bit compatible, it would have to come after being vetted

a better environment. >> why? so many companies run so poorly? >> i think you have a market that is fair value, plus or minus. it is not overshadowed particularly. corporate are healthy. financials are well capitalized. interest rates are low. company balance sheets are filled with cash. private equities trading over one billion dollars. unclogged capital commitments. ironically in environment where you have low growth means that they are much more receptive to value trading ideas. that lends itself to a very fertile environment for what we do. take one case example. yesterday you filed a 13 tnd with one of your companies, huge, employees 60,000 people. you want to talk to the board about pretty much everything, right? management, capital structure, other stuff. what ultimately are you trying to achieve here you go -- achieve here you go -- achieve here? several pretty much everything. >> is there that much wrong with the company? >> there are a lot of things right with the company. but all of those things you articulated -- i'm very confident we will be able to work things out amicably.

and blind development. we must strengthen the economic environment and resolve to take forceful measures to complete this challenging task. >> now, we heard the announcements from before and there are many people who are worried about whether or not the government at the end of the day is really going to be willing to sacrifice growth in order to try to push through some of these reforms and address some of on these issues, not only on pollution, but also on debt. in terms of pollution, people are saying that if you really want to shut down a lot of these factory webs you could end up with a lot of workers who don't have any place to go. that is one of the main concerns that could actually leave some questions in people's minds as to whether or not the government will be able to push ahead and make these changes, julia. >> thank you. and if i also noticed a 12.5% rise in their defense budget, too. we've seen expressions of concern before the japanese, which is perhaps surprising. is that a waste of money? what's the feedback been on that rise? i know it's something they seem to do everyt

room in a portfolio for equities in an environment of low rates, even if they're going higher, they're going higher in a very slow fashion, if you want. growth is subdued but is still supportive. so that's overall an environment where you want to be in stocks. >> you know, you're the big picture type of investor, and the big picture for the u.s. market for the last four years has been all of the easy money policy from the federal reserve and plenty of people feel like that's why we are sitting at all-time highs right now. so why wouldn't it reverse itself as the fed begins to pull back on the easy money and even if it starts to raise interest rates sooner rather than later, why isn't this a time when the market starts to retreat, where are we still going higher now? >> well, i think although, you know, we're expecting a normalization of rates at some point in the future, we're not talking about something very quick or very drastic. and at the same time the world is healing from its traumatic experience, if you want, from the crisis. so all of this is supportive. now, actually, clear

think that that's the environment which we've been in. why are they so low? it's not because there's so much liquidity. it's because there's a lot of fear. the fed is beginning its tapering program but yet this flood of fears has overwhelmed the fed's withdrawal of some of its monthly stimulus. so i think that if we do see yields go too much lower, it's all a question of why, and i think really the reason now is because you'd see a spike in fear, and that wouldn't be a good thing, but again it's the type of thing i think you can just sort of look through and actually think that maybe in a month from now we're going to see that this is actually -- we're on to the next story. >> rates are low because there's no demand for credit. >> i continue to think that rates are low. we've seen this rally in rates this year, 40 bits in the ten-year in two months because investors really are concerned about some sort of repricing of risk and this happened two weeks after the fed tapered. that's not a coincidence. >> there's no demand for credit on the consumer side. >> if you actually look at the cons

is that these policymakers are making decision necessary a very different growth environment that we've seen in many, many years. people are talking about how the economy is slow and is burdened with debt. there were a lot of questions about the financial sector and the health of it. and the government really doesn't have the same levers that past administrations have had in order to try to stimulate growth. so this is a back drop that they are facing at this time. the big question that people are have here going into this congress is just how will the slowing economy play with those reforms? the government has made big announcements at the end of the last week that we were going to make quite dramatic changes in a chinese contest. but we haven't really seen them walk the talk. that's what investors are going to want to see. they're going to want to see serious efforts in progress for the -- for not only the policies themselves, but also the pace of change. >> thanks so much, eunice. we'll watch for that later on this week. now, the u.s. is bracing for another massive late winter snowstorm, this time taki
're in this zero interest rate environment among the g-8 in a lot of ways people are stretching to always look for yield, right? and at this point in time there's not much alpha in the fixed income world so it's driving people to always look for that opportunity. i think selectively there are tremendous opportunities in emerging markets. but you have to be careful and do your due dildiligence. >> i imagine you have a number of etfs for that, right? >> we do. and we're very happy about our new etf, too. >> be well. >> pleasure. >>> we are a few days away from jobs friday and, of course, that means another opportunity for you to nail the number and win a prize. tweets your predictions for february nonfarm payrolls. use your handle @squawkstreet and if you win, you'll receive this, cnbc hat signed by the whole "squawk on the street" team. are we going to show a video of it? i guess not. we've got it behind us. we'll sign it right now. back here, yes. very nice. sara's going to put it on right now. >> no, it will ruin my hair. >> the ear flaps will work. >> the producer called it a flapper hat. is
on the environment beyond the end of this term. it's an interesting read. >> fossil fuels, they don't like them. by the way, china in their new five five-year plan, thank you, mao, is talking about environmental cleaner. that's instrumental. you got to be able to gauge the ability to be able to see your feet in the smog there. and i know that that's where the real issues are for global warming. obviously they take our jobs. they do a lot of global warming. but we're worried about keystone. in the meantime the trucks and the trains are going to take it all. they are terrible ways. trains don't use that much pollution, but understand that when warren buffett said it's better, a big pipeline cop,mpany, but burlington northern will be the primary beneficiary so i thought he was unconflicted and also unqualified. >> very nice. down is down 27 or 29 points let's get to bob pisani on the floor. good morning. >> good morning. we started in positive territory on the s&p but we just turned negative and, of course, we were at historic highs not just there but the midcap and small cap in
that creates an environment where investment and innovation and competition can thrive, the american people benefit. we've seen it in the wireless industry, we're seeing it in the broadband industry and the story of the media marketplace over the last 40 years since we last adopted our media rules has been one where competition has flourished. i think that's something the fcc would do well to remember when it steps into this marketplace. >> i'll tell you, sir, i mean i'm glad you're there and you're doing the lord's work. but whether it's broadband issues or the old fairness doctrine, the fcc is on the wrong side of every issue. you talk about innovation and entrepreneurship, you're right, god bless. the fcc on the wrong side, the ftc, all these independent agencies. i say get rid of them. >> part of the frustration that you have with agency comes into sharp relief when it comes to the media because we do have a core first amendment freedom. so when you combine the way that the study was created with that core fcc freedom -- first amendment freedom, i think people do rightly get concerned.

cigarette how well the market did in an environment that's been as anti-business as i have ever seen in my lifetime and i think that what you were just saying is absolutely true. i see this more as a spring that's wound up and ready to be unleashed. imagine where we would be if we had a president that was reaganesque that freed up capital, ended up launching new businesses for a new world. so all of that can very well happen and the fact is it can't get any worse in the last five years. >> it's coming, jack. one of the signals. stock market is telling you, the political situation, policy situation they are talking flat taxes now, they are going shut down this obamacare, it's coming jack. keep the faith. thanks to boston you gentlemen. now it was five years ago that the tea party was born. will that movement rebond with the rest of the gop and hand republicans control of the senate in november? we'll talk about that next with our political panel. please stay with us. turn aroun♪ ♪ every now and then i get a little bit hungry ♪ ♪ and there's nothing really good around ♪ ♪ turn ar
by castingt this environment of weak this takeed president putin to the actions. the whole thing began by him intervening in ukraine internal politics where they were trying to execute an agreement with the eu. ultimately this invasion by russia. the president, and secretary kerry, have to shift their view to understand this is a different russia than they perceived. their view has been as secure russia is a secure europe, but the more secure russia feels, the more adventurous they become. the secretary needs to begin to recognize this is not an east-west issue. >> bring as breaking news to help us in the conversation. >> the ukraine prime minister says russian forces are now only in crimea. also seeks clarity for what they want and says the troops will not invade east ukraine. headlines from the ukrainian prime minister. to what extent is there discussion on moving american warship to the region if it comes to that? there needs to be a broader discussion then where do we move asset? takeed to make sure we actions that strengthen the allies. a number of allies are very nervous right now. obvi
environment further to that point is an entirely different story right now. the emergency right now is to have a program by the imf and other geopolitical standpoint to have some sort of a dialogue toh russia on the best way get out of this crisis. >> dragon capital was one of a number that signed an international appeal to the investment community. theask that you use all of means to your disposal to promote a peaceful resolution to the conflict -- it goes on. how much can this accomplish? how much can your partners do to influence [inaudible] putin's actions? whether with respect to they can do by having a sort of mature into a discussion with the russian president. we wrote that letter. we signed it together with the in orderestment banks to mark a point and say that anybody can act at its own local level. i believe that the 11% drop in sx today is a political argument being sent to russia saying this has a cost. do not agree with any military intervention, there are a few tools at the disposal of funds and entities around the world to highlight the cost of the current operation. >> did you
